Awesome, Mike! :wub: 

What's going on in the lower left there? Another ammo? Or gastropod?

Wicked cool, brother.

Thanks, Tim. There is a mash of gastropods around the aperture...lots of Turritella and at least one representative from a different genus.

I've always enjoyed that cool association.  I assume that gastropods either scavenged the ammonite living chamber or opportunistically took up residence there.  I have several cool examples of this found in Texas ammonites.

As the story unfolds. Really nice find, Mike. Enjoy seeing it exposed. Reminds me of the Spathites we found together that's now sitting up on my shelf. Congratulations. Yours is definitely a winner.

Thanks, Jeff...I found a large gastropod today, not too far from that gully. :)
